Thanx Amy!!! I just can't believe it!! When we heard about it on the news, I kept saying.....I'm sure we won't qualify, or they'll need some sort of document from the state, on & on......so when hubby got home & said.....the bad news is we need to pay them $99, then the so-so news of how long it could take & then hit me with the total amount......I literally had to sit down.....my knees got a bit weak. We're getting back, basically what my hubby made last year & we already got back almost $10,000 this year for tax refunds........total state of shock!!

Hi Laurie I've been reading your trip reports for a while. My kids and I love to look at your pictures and plan what we want to do next time we get to go to Disneyland! Anyway, I just wanted to tell you how happy I am to hear your great news!!! We're in the midst of trying to plan our own Christmas trip but don't have anything definite yet. I'll be reading along as you plan your trip!

So our local H&R Block has decided they need to send our thing off to be reviewed by someone higher up (or more knowledgable) before they submit this to the feds.........I sure this doesn't change things!!! I was so excited to be told we'd get that money & now we're sitting in limbo until we get final word sometime next week..........so fingers crossed that it doesn't change things!!! I so want this trip & this money would assure we could afford to do it!!!

Thank you.....we're pretty excited & a bit in shock!!! Talked with H&R Block again today, they're having someone look it over just to make sure we didn't forget something.....other than that, it will be mailed out on Monday!!!! The gal said her ammended refund took 5 months......so we're not expecting the money until September (but would love to see it earlier!!)

You have a trip coming up too!!! Very exciting!!!

Where in Washington are you??

We're in Wenatchee...pretty much center of the state.

This weekend I'm working on my paperwork for my tax return. Gotta get all my med bills together. We'll use the return for the hotel...so it will be nice to know how much we can count on!

GONNA RUN US $99 TO REFILE, BUT WE'LL BE GETTING MORE THAN $24,000 BACK!!!! THINK I'M GOING TO PASS OUT!!!!!!!

Only bad news is, it can take anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months to get back!!! Hoping it doesn't take the 6 months......wouldn't give me much time to book flights to keep us all together on the plane!!!
I know this information is correct because my girlfriend and her husband have adopted 6 special needs children. From my understand the reasoning behind the credit is that most people are unable to claim the adoption credit each year and the limitation of years you can get the credit. So the powers that be decided that a cash payout is more beneficial to the families . I am very happy for you and your family and i am sure things will work out! Congratulations and thank you for showing others how truly special caring for special needs children can be .

Are you ready for the winter to be over.....seeing the sun today was nice, but forecast doesn't show it staying very long.....heavy sigh!!

Tax returns are the best!! That's how we paid for our March trip!!! Plus a whole lot of other stuff!!! Good luck & hopefully you'll get a hefty return too!!

That's great news!!! It really is a nice pat on the back from the government! Some people look at having a special needs child as a bad thing.....I feel they teach us so much & God hand picked us to care for them!! I feel blessed everyday to have the twins in our family!!
